Gene: Myf6 (myogenic factor 6) Mus musculus
Symbol: Myf6
Name: myogenic factor 6
RGD ID: 10946
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific. Involved in muscle organ development; regulation of transcription, DNA-templated; and somitogenesis. Predicted to localize to nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including esophagus; ganglia; limb; paraxial mesenchyme; and skeletal musculature. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital structural myopathy. Orthologous to human MYF6 (myogenic factor 6); INTERACTS WITH bis(2-chloroethyl) sulfide; bisphenol A; dexamethasone.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: bHLHc; bHLHc4; herc; herculin; MRF; MRF4; muscle-specific regulatory factor 4; myf-6
